Two hour pilot airs 8/7C Fri, Jun 26

Co-created by Michael Taylor and Ronald D. Moore ("Battlestar Galactica"), the sci-fi drama revolves around the crew of the Phaeton, Earth's first starship. To endure the 10-year journey, the astronauts use virtual reality modules which allow them to assume avatars and explore self-created scenarios. But just as the mission is about to enter its critical go/no-go phase, a virus begins to infect the system and puts all of their lives on the line.

The show's ensemble cast includes Clea DuVall, Erik Jensen, Gene Farber, James D'Arcy, Jimmi Simpson, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Joy Bryant, Kerry Bishe, Nelson Lee, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Omar Metwally, Richie Coster and Sienna Guillory.

Peter Berg helmed the Universal Media Studios-based pilot and executive produced alongside Taylor, Moore, Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun and Sarah Aubrey.

Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and gods, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the gods themselves.

The theme song from the "Munsters" sung in Japanese was awesome.

Re: Virtuality

I don't think it will last. The pilot received horrible ratings, partially because it was on Friday and partially because Fox didn't promote it too well.

Question to all those who seen it - is it worth watching even if they won't air any new eps (I mean - does it  end with a nasty cliffhanger)?

It was okay. Not great IMHO.
There are much better scifi pilots that never made it that I would watch instead like Global Frequency, etc.
It does have a "interesting" cliffhanger..

Re: Virtuality

I will not be watching this show.

Re: Virtuality

There will not be another episode - even before airing Fox decided (a couple months back) not to pick it up. Around February/March is the time when new shows ordered by networks are screened and the decision is made to pick it up or not. So Virtuality was dead even before it was born.

In this regard it shares the fate of Global Frequency, with the difference that Global Frequency's pilot had to be leaked illegally, while Virtuality was voluntarily aired by Fox - maybe because the investment was too high or because it was Ron Moore's (Battlestar Galactica) show, who knows.

Having said that, there was a rumor that Fox might reconsider picking it up as a recurring show if the critics loved it and the pilot could gain a wide audience. The critics loved it alright, but due to MJ's death the ratings were piss-poor, so even if the rumor was true, now Virtuality stands virtually (pun intended) no chance.

I kind of liked the pilot - it was different and had promise. But it also suffered from the same problem any "realistic" space show has: all the characters were borderline psychotic and crazy and thus unlikeable. Other than the ship's engineer I hated each and every one of them. And I also hated the intentionally bad special effects in all the fake realities. I would continue watching it had it continued, but now that point is moot.

Re: Virtuality

Couldn't watch more than 30 minutes... Since the series won't be airing I'm glad I didn't watch the whole thing.

Re: Virtuality

good riddance to crap

Re: Virtuality

Had possibilities but with a fixed crew roster it also had drawbacks and contrary to what Humpas wrote the chicks weren't that hot.
